It starts and finishes in Waikanae and will go around the iconic 95km circuit of - Waikanae - Paraparaumu - Paekakariki Hill - Haywards Hill - River Road to Brown Owl in Upper Hutt - then across the Akatarawa hill road, descending to the finish at Waikanae.
We have an 8.30am start, with a time limit on participants of a maximum riding time of 5 hours (see "Event Details" for more information). There will be stringent traffic Control on the circuit with partial road-closures in place on some parts of the circuit.
All supporters are encouraged to leave the start ahead of the event and proceed to the top of the Paekakariki hill to witness the cyclists climbing this famous hill. This climb will be closed to traffic when the riders come through - so we'd ask supporters to aim to be in place up the hill by 8.30. (They can then head back to Waikanae to view the finish).
There are plenty of details on this site - so please have a browse.
